Wonderful Stay in Beaufort

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough good things about our stay at Michael's historic cottage in Beaufort. The cottage exceeded our expectations, and the setting, with its magnificent gardens, was peaceful and serene. We thoroughly enjoyed getting to spend time with Michael, our delightful host, and his two Golden Retrievers, Keegan and Tucker. Our two dachshunds had a great time playing with the Michael's dogs (who were extremely tolerant of our dogs' chasing and barking at them). We loved the location of the cottage. We were able to walk pretty much anywhere in the downtown area. We couldn't have asked for a more accommodating host or a better place to stay. Highly recommend!

Peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

Amazing gardens--even bonsai!!

Very quiet/peaceful, in heart of historic district (walking distance to lots of restaurants, shops, gelato). Our black lab loved it too! Owner was wonderful/even fed our dog for us when our kayaking adventure ran a little late. Already booked next year.

Great location and hospitality

  • 5 of 5

Michael was a great host. We had a one year old puppy with us and he loved playing in the secure yard with Michael's puppy. Host provided everything we needed and then some. He even let our dog out in the yard for us while we went on a couple non dog friendly excursions during the week.

Cozy Beaufort cottage

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Michael's cottage for a week. We loved the spacious grounds and beautiful garden that surround it. The cottage was stocked with all to make our weeks stay comfortable. There couldn't be a better location to explore Beaufort. This property is located in the historical center of the city. We had a very enjoyable stay.

Walden: A week in Beaufort

  • 5 of 5

I have spent plenty of time in Beaufort SC. This town is so multifaceted that a week barely gives you enough time to experience it all.

That being said, the part of Beaufort one cannot afford to miss is the history and rich historic quaintness that is unique to only Beautiful Beaufort. Michael's 1800's cottage was moved to his yard years ago to complete what just may be the most amazing garden in the heart of Beaufort.

Walk. Walk the yard, walk downtown, walk the neighborhoods. Beaufort is about walking and going a bit slower, do this and you will begin to absorb what the cottage is all about.

We stayed with Michael, Keegan and Tucker (his golden retrievers) for the last week of September 2016. His dogs were amazing hosts to our two Goldens, it was great watching them play and just enjoy the setting.

I was completely absorbed by the cottage, feeling like Thoreau in Walden for just a week, and that was what I needed. We also found this to be the perfect hub for day trips to Huntington Island, Hilton Head, Savannah, and Charleston. Michael is accessible and gracious but at the same time you feel like you are miles away from the world. My only regret is that I could only stay a week.

This will be my go to for Beaufort SC trips.

What an awesome choice of places to stay!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time in Beaufort, SC, and we truly found the best place to stay!!! Such a beautiful cottage, loaded with history itself, beautiful gardens all around, walking distance into town for dining, shopping, touring the historical homes of the town and best of all a walk to the waterfront where you can sit in a swing and watch the most beautiful sunset....every night!!! For us personally, we had the thrill of hearing fighter jets fly over every day, while practicing! Awesome!!! We love military airshows! Can't say enough about how fantastic a place this is, and how very nice, friendly and easy going the owner is! I could have spent a day just sitting on the porch of the cottage and enjoying the gardens and the variety of birds around us!!! Definitely coming back, hopefully permanently to Beaufort!!
